April 2018 Edition    

Editor: Brendan Tierney, 978-717-6144


  • The April 2018 edition of the newsletter was delayed 1 week due to a cyber attack on pipelines using Latitude Technologies as a service provider.  In order to provide the most accurate transactional history, we opted to delay newsletter publication until all systems were back up.  We have since rectified all Latitude pipeline transactions during the force majeure event.
  • The March seasonal bid transactions saw the most significant annual increases, with the exception of the monthly transactions.
  • Monthly capacity release transactions saw the only volumetric decrease over last month with a reduction of 40%.
  • Spot transaction saw the greatest percentage increase over last monthís numbers with a more than seven fold increase.
  • Donít forget to check out our NEW LinkedIn and Twitter links below.
